New tee-shirts going well

They’ve only been on sale for 48 hours or so but it’s reported from HQ that our new tee shirts in support of the NHS and other key workers are going well and are proving popular well beyond Oldham and the surrounding areas.

Orders have already come in from places like Wakefield, Walsall and Sunderland.

Half of the profits from the sale of these ‘NHS’ shirts will go to local NHS charities so by buying you are not only helping Roughyeds; you are also helping the NHS and all those wonderful key workers whose job on the front line during the Coronavirus pandemic has saved thousands of very sick people, including our very own Brendan Sheridan.

“We all owe a great debt to the doctors, nurses and other key workers who have put their own lives on the line to help everybody else and this is one way we can show our appreciation,”

said Oldham RLFC chairman Chris Hamilton, who is himself an NHS volunteer worker.

You have until next Sunday night, June 28, to put in your orders for the tee-shirt via the Roughyeds website. They are priced at £29 and come in all sizes (see website).

Club Cash Lottery

In challenging times for businesses we are again stressing our urgent need for more financial support via the Club Cash lottery from both existing and new members.

With door-to-door collections temporarily abandoned, some have paid up front to cover a few weeks; moved to direct debit; or completed a bank transfer but the overall result has seen a drop in lottery income of nearly 50 per cent.

This trend is hitting all clubs and organisations and we have had to temporarily modify the weekly prize structure in line with the number of people taking part.

We still have a weekly first prize of £1,000 and other prizes of £100, £50 and £25 plus some £10 consolation prizes and we urgently and seriously need people to help us on this.

One way is to download a direct debit form here and follow the instructions.
